    E-Collar Training Explored with Eric Letendre

    We have a new conversation with Eric Letendre, a trainer based in the Massachusetts area. Last time I spoke to Eric he'd published his first book, The Deadly Dog Training Myth.

    There is so much conversation about remote training collars, but specifically a lot of misunderstandings about what they are for and what they can do.

    We discuss the mistakes people make when choosing a collar. We talk about "lesser"/"cheaper" collar types and owners' basic use methods.

    Pros and Cons of Food Treats and Corrections

    Pros and Cons of Food Treats and Corrections

    On our 100th episode I give a consolidated answer to a question that comes up a lot. When and why I use food as a trainer (or choose not to), and when and why I do or don't use corrections or dog collars. It's time we dive in on this subject.

    For every trainer there is a different opinion. And it's easy to take one particular past podcast episode and think that I either am or am not a "food treat" trainer based on the topic at hand. Different situations dictate those circumstances and I explain why.

Getting inside a dog’s head

I have become an avid listener because I love how Sean gets to the source of why a dog acts out and he focuses on positive reinforcement rather than harsh discipline.

Last week I submitted a question and was so surprised that he actually called me. We discussed my dog’s anxiety for over an hour. I found Sean to be knowledgeable, intelligent, understanding and very generous with his time.

My rescued and beloved standard poodle is on the path to some emotional recovery and I am better equipped to help her thanks to his advice.

Give it a listen so you can get into your dog’s head. You will be glad you did.

His methods work!

I love this podcast. Not only do I get tips for working with my dog but I find him easy to listen to. Something about this podcast is gentle and soothing. I saw immediate results with my dog using his tips and methods. I can listen to this podcast when I have insomnia and there is no harsh ads or music to interrupt me as I finally drift off to sleep thinking about my precious dog and how I’m going to continue to train her.
